Why Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners

The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays (aligners) that fit over the teeth. The aligners are custom made following a computer-generated plan, to slowly exert pressure on your teeth, to move them to a new position.

Aligners are changed approximately every two weeks to move teeth into the desired position. You will check in with us regularly to make sure things are going to plan. And to get your next few aligners.

If you are worried about your teeth being discoloured, the good news is you can whiten your teeth while you straighten them, using the aligners as home whitening trays.

Traditional Treatment Versus Invisalign Treatment

There are some clear advantages of Invisalign. When comparing traditional braces to Invisalign aligners, it’s clear the Invisalign system could deliver more benefits, from aesthetics and comfort through to oral hygiene and treatment time.

You should choose the process that can give you the results you want, that fit in with your lifestyle. If you are worried about people knowing you are doing braces, then the clear advantages of Invisalign could be right for you.

For kids and teens, it may be advised to use traditional braces, where the child may be too “lazy” to wear their aligners. If they are not worn 23 hours a day, the results will not be achieved, the treatment take longer, and you may be wasting your investment.
